Hi everyone,

The murmur comes to you once again, filled with book sales, apartments for rent, and opportunities to get involved outside of the MSS. Oh, and if you have ever dreamed about pushing your boundaries and, I dunno, jumping out of a place, well today is your lucky day. Be sure to see the sky diving activity that has been planned by your Med-1 class, open to everyone.

Have a great week,

Natasha Caminsky, 2016-2017 MSS VP Internal

McGill Osler Society: Applications for the Executive Committee 2017-18

Faculty of Medicine

The McGill Osler Society is recruiting executives for the 2017-18 year. Prior involvement with the Osler Society is not an application requirement for any of the available positions. The deadline to apply is May 22nd, 2017 at 11:59PM.

In the spirit of Sir William Osler, the Society aims to enrich the education of McGill students in medicine and other disciplines with lectures given by distinguished guest speakers, and with the presentation and discussion of papers concerning Humanities and the Social Sciences in Medicine. Furthermore, the Society puts a focus on developing philanthropy among medical students and on exploring enriching experiences that allow students develop into more well-rounded physicians. Our events include organizing the much anticipated annual Osler Banquet.

If you have a passion for the medical humanities, medical education, philanthropic events, or all of the above, we highly encourage you to get involved with the Osler Society, which is the oldest student society at McGill and is nearing its 100th year of existence!

Room for Rent

I have to leave behind my super sweet place on de Maisonneuve literally right across the street from the Glen.
It's a 2-storey apartment, and on the main floor there's a beautiful kitchen with a balcony, a huge bathroom with standing shower, jacuzzi tub and washer/dryer, a room that's currently my office but could be a dining room, a nice and bright living room, and one bedroom. The upstairs is a kind of loft area which is also gigantic, with its own bathroom with a tub, but no shower. There's also a big attic area for storage.
My brother's moving into the bedroom on the main floor so I'm looking for someone to take the loft area upstairs. He's a JMSB student and a pretty cool guy, and your landlords would be the nicest, most helpful and most reasonable people in the world (my parents).
We're asking $650 plus half of the utilities. The shared spaces are furnished, and there's the possibility of your bedroom being furnished too. If you're interested, know someone who might be, or want to come see it, let me know!
